Assignment Details
The bones of the face, or skull as it is sometimes referred to, are there for the purpose of protecting and supporting the entrance to the digestive system and the respiratory
system. These bones also provide sites for the attachment of muscles that control the mouth, eyes, scalp, and lower jaw. The bones and muscles of the face and head are all
needed by forensics teams to recreate what was once the face of an individual. This is known as facial reconstruction. The skull provides clues to the personal appearance.
Facial reconstruction can put a name on an unidentified body in a modern forensic case.
Address the following in your main post:
Why do you think facial reconstruction is important to a crime scene? Explain.
What do you think are the most significant challenges associated with facial reconstruction? Explain.
What is the most important historical contribution to the study of facial reconstruction? Why?
What role do you think technology has played in improving facial reconstruction techniques? Provide an example to support your argument.
In your own words, please post a response to the Discussion Board and comment on other postings. You will be graded on the quality of your postings.
For assistance with your assignment, please use your text, Web resources, and all course materials.
Discussion Board Reminders:
Must have 3 posts: A main post and two replies to peers.
First post: Either your main post or a reply to others must be posted before midnight CT (Central time) on Friday of each week.
Second and third post: Must be posted on a different day from the first post.
